Yanayacu  Research  Station  is based in the mountains  about 20 minutes drive from Cosanga. It is a rather unique  area as it is between Cloud forest and Tropical  Rainforest, The scientific name for an area like this is Montane forest. Currently there are only two other American volunteers here including myself, Ellie and Lauren leave this week(they have been here as part of their uni course).
I will be continuing the caterpillar project, it involves collecting specimens from the local Bamboo then cataloging and feeding them. Once they go through metamorphosis stage the butterflies get frozen and pinned.
Also this week an American uni group will be coming to work and study for a few weeks.

Yanayacu is a very peaceful and comfortable place it is run by Hydro Electricity and Gas.
